About Jeff Kauffman

Jeff Kauffman is a photographer working in Austin, Texas. He grew up in rural Pennsylvania during a time when people communicated using rotary telephones. After earning a computer science degree from Penn State University, Jeff moved to Washington DC -- and later to Austin TX – to build a career in software engineering. His photography interests began at Washington School of Photography and continued with Santa Fe Workshops.
He has been developing his photography while also working full time in technology consulting. Jeff ‘s photography shows an interpretive view of his subjects, presenting lines, structure, character, and sometimes weirdness, in compelling compositions. His work has appeared world-wide in publications, art exhibitions, and business venues.
Jeff lives in Austin, uses a smartphone, and tells dumb jokes.
